Prayer to St. Oliver Plunkett
Glorious Martyr, Oliver, who willingly
gave your life for your faith,
help us also to be strong in faith.
May we be loyal l
ike you
to the See of Peter.
By your intercession and example
may all hatred and bitterness
be banished from the hearts
of Irish men and women.
May the peace of Christ reign
in our hearts,
as it did in your heart,
even at the moment of your death.
Pray for us and for Ireland
. Amen
.

 

A Prayer of St. Fursey 7th Century - died 650AD

“The arms of God be around my shoulders,

The touch of the Holy Spirit upon my head,

The sign of Christ’s cross upon my forehead,

The sound of the Holy Spirit in my ears,

The fragrance of the Holy Spirit in my nostrils,

The vision of heaven’s company in my eyes,

The conversation of heaven’s company on my lips,

The work of God’s church with my hands,

The service of God and my neighbour in my feet,

And a home for God in my heart,

And to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit my entire being.

Amen.”
